« They didn’t want to leave! »

What makes Cos d’Estournel stand out among Bordeaux’s great estates?

Cos d’Estournel is a journey in itself. Our clients do not only feel welcome; they are made to feel at home. Cos d’Estournel demonstrates a unique attention to detail and singular ability to create exclusive experiences.

One year, for example, our clients were able to participate in the harvest and the traditional harvest lunch. They were so thrilled to take part in this authentic moment that they didn’t want to leave! These kinds of experiences are very rare, especially at estates as prestigious as Cos d’Estournel.

When it comes to accommodations, what are the particularities of La Maison d’Estournel and the Chartreuse ?

Cos d’Estournel is the estate that goes the furthest when it comes to the French art of entertaining.

La Maison d’Estournel is a country house surrounded by vineyards where our clients enjoy the most authentic comforts and charm. There is no front desk; rather, guests are warmly welcomed by a Hostess and receive attentive, informal service during their stays. The site’s many delights include conversing with the chefs in the restaurant’s open kitchen, retreating to its inviting library, and resourcing oneself in its beautiful garden.

The Chartreuse offers the most luxurious accommodations in the region. Guests enjoy a most private stay, for the Chartreuse only welcomes one party at a time, and they are invited to go behind the scenes alongside the estate’s winemaking team and enjoy the most exclusive tastings, from wines in the barrel to the estate’s most exquisite vintages.

You have many American clients. What do they think of their experience at Cos d’Estournel?
